While there is plenty of content at San Diego Comic Con with panels for comics, TV, toys, and collectibles of all sorts the biggest players in the game are featured in the infamous Hall H with arguably the most popular TV shows and Movies featured on Friday and Saturday. People spend days waiting in line to get into the panel room and the payoff can be satisfying if you have the patience to wait in line. This was my second year attending Hall H on Saturday and it was a jam-packed filled day with Warner Bros./DC, HBO’s Westworld, Netflix’s Stranger Things, and Marvel.
Directors and Celebrities all show up and discuss their upcoming movies and this year was no different. Steven Spielberg came out to introduce his Ready Player One movie, Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling discussed Blade Runner 2049, the Casts of Justice League, Westworld, Black Panther, and Thor were all on hand.
So sit back and relax and check out some photos from Saturday in Hall H
